or are you just happy sashimi?

After sitting three mid semester exams, I couldn’t think of a better way to wind down then to finally play(?) with the box of sugary sushi goodness that I picked up from SOGO in Hong Kong a few years ago along with the Obento set. This set was actually at the top of my list…

$4+ churros? no more!

Churros have always been a love of mine, but I’ve never been able to justify the ridiculous prices you have to pay at san churro/max brenner or movie world. Under the impression that they were really hard to make I even made these, but to my surprise, I was able to whip these up with…

mini corn dog muffins

here’s one of the recipes I mentioned yesterday – taken and adapted from iowagirleats! (i halved the amount, reduced sugar + butter, and used corn flour instead of cornmeal)  they tasted alright, probably won’t be needing another batch anytime soon though – i made 24, and even when shared between 3 people there’s still around 8 left…

coconut, milo and white chocolate filling

yellow and purple were our colours of choice when the three of us got together yesterday to try to perfect the art of macaron making. we made one batch, and split the mixture in half, one for each colour. but for some reason the ‘purple’ ones (technically blue and nearing ‘stone’ coloured, by the end…

it’s (almost) c-c-christmas! ^ㅂ^

What do you get when you mix aeroplane jelly + 250mL hot water + 1 tbsp gelatine + 1 tsp gelatin + 1 tbsp sugar + 100mL cold water? Christmas tree jellies, ofc! These were for our Christmas party that we had yesterday! Added some coconut on the trees as ‘snow’, and they just so happened to highlight the tree…

Sugar Rush

I think I’m going to pass on sugar for the next month or so… The first fix was on Thursday when I was handed 11 packets of free haribo’s on the way down to the bus stop… Mind you in hindsight 11 packets probably wasn’t a lot, seeing as they’re all gone now aha… And…

a little warmth

I admit, I was really hesitant to go to the wedding service this morning, just thinking about the amount of work that’s still not done (that I said I would do these holidays..). I didn’t think it’d be worth going if I were to just spend the whole time worrying about the work that I…

very advanced biscuit dough

so on monday everyone crashed my house and had our baking day~ the cat cookies were made using cookie cutters from muji, and the letters were made using cookie letter stamps from log-on! (all purchases from hong kong ^^)  it’s been a long time since all 5 of us church buddies have been together! so…
